FIFA 19 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo has apparently received the world’s first copy of the game which isn’t due to release for another week and a half (September 28).
The Juventus star tweeted a picture of himself and son, Cristiano Ronaldo Junior, posing with a PlayStation 4 copy of the game. The which arrived in a special edition with the tag line ‘champions rise’ which ties in with the game’s new Champions League license.

While Ronaldo appears proudly on the front cover in full Juventus kit, his £99million move to Italy must have caused EA Sports a few issues. Whilst changing the front cover should have been simple enough, there were worries that the transfer could have ruined Journey Mode.
FIFA 19’s story mode will this year see the final chapter of Alex Hunter as he secures his dream move to Real Madrid with eyes on the Champion’s League trophy. Many real-life Madrid stars such as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos appear in the game.
The last few entries of the Journey have included voice acting from some of the world’s best football players. With Hunter at Madrid and EA’s close links to Ronaldo, there’s no way they didn’t plan to include him.
Ronaldo is the cover star for FIFA 19 but his move to Juventus could have caused EA problems
CR7 completed his move just a couple of months before FIFA 19’s release but EA stress that his transfer never caused any issues and Journey mode was left unhindered. EA have pulled out all the stops for the mode this year, allowing you to follow three different players at once, deciding who you want to see succeed.
While the game’s release date is still fairly far off, die-hard FIFA fans can get early access to the game on Thursday, September 20 if they are subscribed to Origin Access Premier.
Those who pay the £14.99-a-month fee can enjoy 10 hours of full FIFA 19 gameplay before the full release. Otherwise, a free demo is also available on all consoles and PC which previews the game’s new features but isn’t close to the finished product.
